While some people take offense at being called a “suit," it’s not nearly as bad as being called a “zoot suit," which implies involvement with swing music and unnecessarily high-waisted pants. Don luxe duds proudly with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of men's clothing and accessories at Tom Karle & Son Traditional Clothiers, located in The Shops at the Colony on West 8th Street.
Tom Karle & Son Traditional Clothiers outfits dapper chaps in exquisitely tailored sartorial selections that traverse the divide between board room and clubhouse with nary a problem. Tom Karle’s elegantly outfitted garmentmongers cull traditional dress clothing and sportswear from brands including Jack Victor, Cutter & Buck, Gitman Brothers, Peter Millar, and Allen Edmonds. They also proudly purvey custom suits, shirts, and sexy teapot covers handmade by their full-time in-house tailor. Vestments include sport coats starting at $45, ties starting at $45, socks starting at $13, and belts starting at $40. Sportswear by Cutter & Buck and Bobby Jones cuts a handsome figure on the golf course, out on the town, or while traversing a shopping mall’s complex series of escalators ($50–$295).
Unlike buying a pet, all regularly priced purchases at the store include alterations. Men can also complement their new wears with accessories including multiple flavors of shoes, weather-repellent outerwear, tie choices that range from repp to paisley, and fedoras begging for a fashion revival.
